Trump says alliance between US and Israel is unbreakable
The alliance between the United States and Israel is unbreakable, the US President Donald Trump said during his address to a joint session of Congress tonight.
At the same time, the President stressed the sanctions he imposed on individuals and companies providing support to Iran's ballistic missile program.
US Treasury Department imposed additional sanctions on 12 entities, as well as 13 individuals in February 2017.
Some of the entities sanctioned by the US. Treasury are based in the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon and China. The sanctions were applied to punish Iran for testing its ballistic missile programme and its support of the groups that the United States considers terrorists, such as Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah militants.
The issue of Iran, which the Israeli government considers a threat to its national security is the main theme of the US-Israeli dialogue.
